Double Portrait

Colm MacAthlaioch is an artist, illustrator, gallery director, musician, designer and a fierce handsome fella, who until recently was based in Dublin. A founder member of MonsterTruck Galeries on Francis Street. He set up shop for a few mornings in a local co-op market on Newmarket Square www.dublinfood.coop and offered a sweet deal – a caricature and cup of tea for a tenner. We missed it at the time so, just before he sailed off to break London, we invited Colm around to the studio for some new age barter – we’d give him lunch in return for an office caricature. Having never sat for a portrait before, the feeling of being on the psychiatrist’s couch was a little unsettling, and we hoped he maybe didn’t quite catch the inner workings of the abgc minds, but thankfully he kept it light hearted – obviously we had arranged not to give him lunch till after.
